Sounds like so much work lol but I shall try out some of these methods, thanks.
Actually it isn't.  If I was doing the whole slide I would do a a quick sanding, a coat of spray primer, and them 1-2 coats of the over-coat.  Let it dry for a week and done.  The only PITA is the waiting.

For my HK45 here's the estimated work
  • Scape off (gently) the white paint - 2 minutes

  • Birchwood Casey - I applied it and wasn't satisfied so you can skip this step

  • Mask of the area to paint with masking tape - 30 seconds

  • One light coat of Krylon Ultra Flat Black Camo - 3 minutes including shaking the can

  • After it sets, about,8hrs , I simply rub the finish a bit...but that's me, you don't need to.
Total work time under 10 minutes.

So I would use masking tape on the whole slide except for that part correct?

Yup.  Mask along seams on the slide because where you mask, there will be a paint line.  A seam or edge on the slide will help to hide the new paint.
